The museum's permanent displays explore the history of the town and port of Goole, with a changing programme of temporary exhibitions in the adjacent gallery. The museum welcomes visits from schools and community groups, and has a dedicated Education Room in which pupils and visitors can work with the museum collections, and there are thematic "memoryboxes" containing a mixture of artefacts (original and replica) photographs and documents available to borrow free of charge. Goole Museum's collections include: marine paintings by Reuben Chappell and other "Pierhead Painters"; shipbuilding and other trades; domestic life, including costume and textiles and historic photographs of Goole and the surrounding area. Admission to Goole Community Museum is free.
